With Fortnite Battle Royale sign-ups for iOS now live and an Android release "coming in the next few months", developer Epic Games has unleashed a Fortnite Battle Royale trailer with footage captured on iPhone X. It's best to upgrade now if you have been waiting for the game to arrive.

The company made the announcement this afternoon that they'll be holding the Fortnite Party Royale at E3, with the intent of inviting not just the greatest Fortnite players from around the globe to participate, but also including celebrities like athletes and entertainers to take part in it as well.

Fortnite also got more searches than the term "bitcoin" and is now estimated to have been played by 45 million people worldwide.

It seems that the initial batch of invites that went out were mostly aimed at gamers who already played the PC, PS4, or Xbox One version of the game.

Epic is surely looking at these and probably other features to see how to best balance the game on mobile, since controls become a far more hard issue.




If you didn't sign up earlier this week, you can still do so on Epic's website. Keep checking, and soon you too might be fighting for that umbrella. Now Fortnite Battle Royal is coming to both iOS and Android devices as Fortnite Mobile.

As for device requirements, Fortnite requires an iPhone SE/iPhone 6s or newer, or an iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4, or 2017 iPad.

Any iPad or device that falls outside these minimum specs won't be able to play the game. If you haven't already you may be required to create an Epic Games account.

You will be directed to the Apple App store where you can download Fortnite Mobile.

While this version of the game is still in development, that hasn't stopped dedicated fans from enjoying the battle royale hit on-the-go. The full game will be there for your iOS devices so you can explore each and every feature and function of this game on a mobile platform as well.

Like most reviewers, Brian Crecente over at Rolling Stone's Glixel praised Fortnite mobile for being a faithful recreation of the core game, but had concerns over the controls.
